Christmas Shopping!

I am usually a last minute Christmas Eve shopper, frantically grabbing gifts and stuffing them into whatever kind of wrapping I can find. Not so this year. My family is facing some major changes in the new year and I decided to make things easy on myself this Christmas.

So I turned to Etsy to find inspired handmade gifts for my family and friends. I've been so pleased with the caliber of craftsmanship and the attention to detail in each one of my purchases that I just have to share them with the world!

The majority of my shopping was done in Flying Bird Botanical's shop. The owner, Scout, has beautifully packaged organic hand-mixed loose leaf teas, and organic bath and body products. Below is her After Dinner Mint loose leaf tea, which is a gift for a special someone in my family.

I also visited Lilac Avenue's shop for handmade scented soy candles. The candle below is Christmas Tree Pine and it smells so good I want to eat it. I might just have to purchase one of these for myself!

Christmas cards were a must to go with all this handmade deliciousness, and I turned to Etc. By Christie, a brand new Etsy shop! I had the privilege of being her first sale which just gives me all kinds of chills. The gorgeous and impeccably crafted card I received gave me further chills! This card is a gift in itself.

And what is a great gift without great wrapping? Vintage Dye provided me with darling gift tags with a nice aged vintage touch. The shop owner was nice enough to make me a custom listing with the exact number of tags I needed!

All in all, my holiday shopping experience this year was the best ever. I never even had to leave the comfort of my couch and ended up with the most incredible gifts!

And in the spirit of simplification this year, I've added gift sets to Eternal Eden's product line. I've taken some of my best selling items and grouped them into coordinating handy dandy gift sets - complete with a nice discount! It's dummy-proof holiday shopping. Stop in and check them out!

Here's to a warm and happy Thanksgiving everyone! And take my advice, forget the mall. Spend your Black Friday weekend on Etsy! :)
